Msinfo32.exe System Information Incorrect Info, How To Edit It
Sep 11, 2010
I have recently bought a computer from a friend (2nd hand). I ran msinfo32.exe in the run box and it shoot out the system information. On there I notice that the manufacture was incorrect and so it the model number. The desktop is a dell and the model is Inspiron 570 MT. I wanted to change it back to these vales but was unable to.I tried using regedit searching under to change data under the name Base Board Manufacturer, system family, system Manufacture and system product name. I've successfully replaced it with the correct manufacture and product name but as I recheck msinfo32.exe it was still unchanged. I tried restarting it hoping that it would refresh the msinfo32.exe but all it did was restoring all the data that I edited.
Recently my music files [it might be with other types of files too, I haven't checked] have somehow changed the security setting so that I can't do anything with them, I can't edit the info in iTunes and I can't delete the files. About the only thing I can do is move the file. I have figured out how to fix this problem one by one with each file (going into properties, security tab, and changing the permissions), however, I've only been able to do this one by one and with each new file the same problem persists. Is there any way I can change some sort of setting or something that allows me to have full control over all files? I am the sole user of the computer, therefore I am the administrator.
I have ripped many cds to my laptop using Windows Media Player 12 and WAV audio format. This seemed to go smoothly but afterwards i noticed that a lot of my CDs have all BUT the first track tagged. I know how to change the info in WMP itself but this doesn't actually change the tag in windows explorer. After ripping, the correct folder on my hard drive will be made with all the tracks on the CD in the right place and every FILE named correctly. However, the first track will be labled "unkown" for each column in my music folder (album name, artist, composer, etc) while every track after that will have each column labled and labled correctly. I try to edit the tag manually from windows explorer but it wont let me edit anything but the actual file name.this is frustrating for syncing my music to my android phone as i have a lot of albums with the first track missing and then a huge unknown list with about 400 songs that are only labled "unknown". i really dont want to have to re-rip all these albums again through a different program or not. is their another solution? can i re-tag tracks manually in explorer so they will stay tagged correctly for good? anybody know why WMP does this?
I use the Media Centre TV listings to record shows, but sometimes the guide lists information for a different episode than the one that is being aired. I am recording broadcast TV over the air. Is it possible to edit this information so that it is for the show actually aired? Even being able to edit the episode title and the original date aired would be a help in keeping track of what I have already recordrd.
I login as John (account type = Administrator) on my Windows 7 Home Premium. My computer System Name is HomePC.When I launched the "System Information" via msinfo32.exe, why does it show the "User Name" as HOMEPCuser instead of HOMEPCJohn
I am unable to create a system repair / recovery disc by either running recDisc.exe or using the option to create a recovery disk in Backup and Retore. It says System Repair Disc could not be created. "The parameter is incorrect (0x80070057)". I have tried using both a blank CDr and a DVDr. I am running Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I am wondering if this is caused by how I setup my dual boot system.
I installed Win 7 to a clean HD first. I noted that it set up a 100 Mb recovery partition. I then realized there was no good way to convert this to a dual boot, so wiped the partitions and set up four news ones: one for XP, one for Windows 7, one for data, and a 133 Mb one in hopes that the installation process would find and use it for the recovery partition. I installed XP first, and then Windows 7 and directed that installation to the partition I had previously setup for it.
I run a number of 32 bit applications on my Windows 7 box. (I have two of them. A 32 bit version and a 64 bit version). When I run MSInfo32 on my 64 bit Windows 7 box, it does not show any of the 32 bit models that are indeed loaded into memory. But they all show up on my 32 bit version of Windows 7. Is there a setting or something that I have to enable in order to "see" all of the loaded modules?

I am having printing problems.I get the following error messages: (1) The Printer is offline (2) The printer is in Error state.one or the other pops up for 3 working days.
I need a software which could save the information when a file is copied from my system to a flash drive, when a person logs into the system, when a person uses internet...I need it for all applications used by the user to be logged in that software.
So, I was running SpaceSniffer, an application that scans my hard drive and displays where the most memory is being used up, and I found something extremely interesting. My Recycle Bin on the desktop is empty, as it should be since I just emptied it. However, the Recycle Bin folder within System Volume Information is occupying 199.9 GB of my space.
I don't know how it happened but I was moving around some stuff and something happened with the open windows (got stucked to the cursor) and when I got it to stop (I've got a new mouse with some small buttons on the side, and I've not managed to get used to them .. however I will disable those)Well the problem is that when I got to unhook that window from my cursor my 300Gb + mp3 folder was gone .. man it almost gave me a heartattack, cause I've been working on that thing for years basically ...I found it, it's somehow inside the "D:system volume information" folder, and if I dragg it out to the root of the D drive it dissapears from the sys vol dir, but doesn't show up in the root at the D drive .. ?? and then if I go out from the sys vol dir and go back in again (basically refresh) then there it is again ..summary: ... cannot move my mp3 folder back to the D: folder since it accidently got moved to d:system volume information ..
I have installed Windows 7 on my C: however my old Windows XP was installed on my D: deleted my Windows XP, and want to use my D: as primarily a data disc, however there's an old System Volume Information lingering around from XP, and no matter what I do (take ownership, add permissions, try to toggle off read only and it goes back) I can't delete it.

I have windows 7 installed as OS.I checked the System Volume Information folders for all the partitions for a possible virus infection.I have C: D: (my first harddisk)and G: (my second harddisk) partitions.I've seen that regarding the D: and G: partitions ,for System Volume Information subfolders (SPP etc..), only SYSTEM has the permission (full control) as shown below(SPP folder as an example):On the other hand , regarding the C: ,for the subfolders(SPP ,System Restore,Windows Backup etc..) SYSTEM and administrators both have the permissions (full control) and for the subfolders of SPP ,such as SppGroupCache and SppCBSHiveStore ; USERS (limited control),SYSTEM (full control)and administrators(full control) have permissions.Is this normal?If it is not , can a virus cause this?Should I remove the permissions of USERS and administrators and leave only the permission of SYSTEM?
how one removes SVI from a non-fixed USB disk? I have system restore switched off on this drive..shows zero on scale but the disk has 623mb of SVI information possibly from a previous restore point setting..not sure where it came from Not sure if indexing is on this drive Can I remove this information.
I had an additional Windows installation for testing purposes, on a different partition and now I want to delete everything associated with it because I need some free space.
Although I managed to take ownership and delete the Windows folder and few others, I can't delete System Volume Information and the pagefile.sys file.
System Volume Information - I can't get "ownership" of the files in the directory. Although I'm listed as an "owner" of the directory with "full control", when I check "Replace owner on subcontainer and objectes" I get "Access is denied" and then "Stopping propagation of the owner leads to an inconsistent state..." I think I came across this before, but I have no idea what to do. I also get "access denied" when I try to change the read-only attribute of the directory.
pagefile.sys - when I right click on it, the security tab says "The requested security information is wither unavailable or can't be displayed"
Device manager shows hidden devices for Non Plug and Play Drivers marked with a yellow star ...My pc is suddenly super slow when I google search and will time out, then it says cannot display web page....system information has critical error control on 16 kernel drivers..Do I start or stop non plug and play? Or is the critical error control the reason my pc is crawling? I have checked for virus and malware...and there is none..Im using mcfee security suite.
On my Dell Windows 7 laptop (Studio 1555) I have the System Volume Information showing (despite checking "hide system files" and hide hidden folder options enabled). The folder is also accessable from my admin account (not the root admin but the admin of the PC).
